The view was spectacular. Food was not good. I have ordered a crispy calamari dish and my calamari were like a cupboard, chewy and not crispy at all. My Asian slaw did not have any dressing and was just a test less shredded cabbage mess. A Vietnamese dipping sauce did not have much flavour ( just lots of chili). Four... More

We arrived in Kerikeri on a Saturday afternoon and a friend recommended that we stop at the pear tree for wine. We had a glass of wine and their local bread and cheese plate?It was delicious! Not busy at all, but it was right before dinner so I'm sure we missed the crowd. The staff was so friendly and helpful,... More

Worth a visit while at the stone store. Only problem is it is just too popular. LOL lots of parking, nice to go for a coffee or lunch after going to the stone store.

Well cooked food with a good choice of menu and very pleasant staff. We ate on the veranda, overlooking the river which was delightful. The restaurant is in a lovely location with easy parking.

A gorgeous place for a weekend brunch, special lunch or romantic dinner. The food is always excellent, the service friendly and the setting on the water always makes for a pleasant dining experience.

The setting & location is lovely. Have eaten there a couple of times and the food is ok. Unfortunately each time we have been there we found the staff very miserable as if they don't want to be there and it feels unfriendly. The food was put down in front of us without any manners and lots of leaning across... More

The balcony at Pear Tree was certainly a beautiful spot to enjoy a long lunch with my wife over Labour weekend. The food was superb, complimented with great beer and wine. The service was good without being outstanding. We had to go and ask for more drinks and waited for a dessert menu without it ever arriving, so we would... More

The location and setting really do set the mood at this resturant. . . The food is of great quality and the matches of flavours are varried. . And the service is fantastic. .

Really nice location, just across the road from the Stone Shop. Great atmosphere in the restaurant and a wonderful deck area that would be perfect in Summer. Service was very friendly. I ate the Sirloin steak, which was perfectly cooked, but it was the accompaniments that really made the dish and the Silverbeet side dish was also a great pick.... More
